WHAT DICTATES SEWER REPAIR SERVICES COSTS

Home / What Dictates Sewer Repair Services Costs

When your sewer line causes sewer and waste to back up into your drains, sinks, toilets, or showers, your main worry after the cleanup is most likely about how much it would cost to fix the problem. The cost of sewer repair in Oroville, CA offered by Atta Boy Plumbing often depends on a few factors.

REPAIR METHOD

You have a few options when it comes to sewer pipe repair. One method uses epoxy sent through the pipe that dries in place to prevent leaks. If you need to remove the whole pipe and replace it, you’ll pay more. You will also pay a higher amount if we need to remove a section of the line.

PIPE SIZE

The price you pay for sewer pipe replacement will vary due to the size and type of pipe you have. Many sewer pipes use metal and cost more to replace than PVC or PEX pipes cost. Your price will also depend on the diameter and length of the pipe. While a four-inch diameter is standard, older homes often have lines with a diameter of 1.5-2 inches that do not meet building codes.

OVERALL CONDITION

Sewer repair services such as removing build-up cost less than you would spend to replace the entire pipe. While cast iron and steel pipes rust from exposure to water, PEX and PVC pipes can crack when the temperature drops below 20 degrees Fahrenheit. You need a licensed plumber to inspect the line and determine if you can get by with a minor repair.

PIPE ACCESSIBILITY

If you need complete sewer pipe installation, we can give you an estimate after looking at the access to the pipe. Let’s say that you have a crawl space with a trench that provides full access to the line. A crawlspace requires a plumber qualified to work in those areas. 

It might be tempting to opt for anyone who offers the lowest overall cost, but only trust a professional plumber in Oroville, CA for the job to ensure quality.
